Mahesh Babu is currently focused on Sarakaru Vaari Paata. He is shooting for the film in Barcelona, Span. The entire filming part is expected to be wrapped by next month. Meanwhile, the stage is being prepared already for Mahesh's immediate next project, SSMB29, which will be directed by none other than creative genius SS Rajamouli. The master craftsman is currently occupied with RRR and he will be shifting his focus onto SSMB29 once RRR hits the big screens. Meanwhile, Rajamouli's father Vijayendra Prasad has been handed over the responsibility of coming up with a winning script for the Mahesh Babu starrer. Related works are underway already.

In his latest interaction with Forbes India, Mahesh confirmed that SSMB29 will indeed be a pan-India film. "SSMP29: Mahesh Babu Mounts More Pressure On SS RajamouliI was born into the South industry, and I'm extremely happy and successful here. And I would change nothing about it. I think all films—whether they are made in the North or South—are made with their own sensibilities, keeping in mind the many cultures that we are a part of. I think there is no real divide. I have always wanted to do the right film at the right time, if it was a Hindi film. And I think the time is now… my next is with SS Rajamouli sir and that will be in all languages," Mahesh revealed as he spoke with Forbes India.

Now that Mahesh has confirmed that SSMB28 will be a pan-India biggie, the expectations on the project will reach the pinnacle stage. That said Mahesh's fans and everyone, in general, were indeed hopeful that the film will indeed be mounted on a pan-India level, given the fact that it marks the coming together of two powerhouses, Mahesh Babu and Rajamouli. The same is confirmed by Mahesh Babu today.

Mahesh plans to take SSMB29, a Rajamouli magnum opus onto the floors once he is done with SSMB28 which will be directed by Trivikram Srinivas. More details about Rajamouli - Mahesh Babu project will be out in the due course. Rajamouli is currently awaiting the release of RRR which will be releasing on the 7th of January next year.
